I decided to cut the cord last month as the bill was too high (187.00) and was recieving sub-optimal customer service. I purchased a firestick thinking i could watch local channels mainly for news. Tried to get basic cable as i was able to get it before i signed up for cable, fund out quick that i needed an antanna to make the it work. Read reviews about this product and ended up with mixed reviews. I decided to try it and if all failed would return it. Needless to say, the set up was extremely easy. Ran the channel search according to the TV and BANGto my surprise, i was in business with more then 25 crystal clear channels. A few in different languages but thats ok as i really wanted it for the news. Im very please and satisfied with the purchase.
